Before and after flight, the controls in the simulators are thoroughly cleaned.
The museum has six simulators:
- J 35J The dragon from the Air Force
- JAS 39 Gripen, which is also adapted for disabled guests. (The Gripen is currently closed for review)
- Convair CV440 Metropolitan from SAS
- McDonnell Douglas DC-10 from Scanair
- Airbus A320 (Keep track of online bookings which Sundays are bookable)
- Link trainer - a classic from the 1920s
The simulators are primarily intended to give those who have no previous experience as pilots a realistic experience of what it is like to hoist a famous aircraft and to show how the work in the cockpit goes.

Payment methods and booking
Payment is made by cash or credit card at the entrance. You then receive a voucher that is handed to the simulator instructor before the flight. For larger groups who book simulator flights in advance it is also possible to arrange payment by invoice. When booking, please indicate which payment method is preferred.
We prefer that you book a simulator pass well in advance if you know you want to fly.
There are only a limited number of slots available for "drop-in" flights.
